Back in April of this year I said some pretty discouraging words about the future prospects of this country. The conceit I pushed in that post involved some of the statements to be found in the Alice in Wonderland stories. All in all, I think the points I made and the insane statements by the inhabitants of Wonderland matched up pretty well. Bravo photog!
Well, current events haven’t overthrown my feelings of doom and gloom over the unprecedented outrages that the Left has unleashed while performing their hostile takeover of the United States. Their willingness to use the Department of Justice and kangaroo courts to imprison their adversaries is proceeding at full speed and now they’ve even indicted a former president in their determination to eliminate their competition in the 2024 Presidential election. So, the madness continues unabated.
But far from sanity returning, the madness is reaching new heights. It’s as if the Wonderland characters have broken through to a new level where even they are shocked by what’s going on.
This week we were witness to the spectacle of the Washington Post declaring that their own new poll of over a thousand voters that showed Trump ahead of Biden by ten points (52 percent to 42 percent) couldn’t possibly be true. It’s as if the Mad Hatter asked his associates a question and then found the answer too crazy for even him to believe!
Now don’t get me wrong. I don’t mean that those poll results mean anything about the Left losing control over the levers of power in Washington. Election fraud is now an exact science and the ballots for November 2024 are probably being printed up right now to save time.
What I am saying is that the combination of banana republic political tactics and the incompetence that this administration has demonstrated with respect to energy policy, economic management, fiscal policy and foreign policy has shocked the American public. Combined with the obvious deterioration of Joe Biden’s physical and mental abilities this has destroyed the country’s confidence in his administration. I’m not surprised by the poll’s result. In fact, based on the panic that has set in, across the Democrat controlled media, I think this poll is being used to convince everyone on the Left that Biden must bow out of the 2024 race immediately.
It has been opined by several people that I talk to, that the recent indictment of Senator Menendez of New Jersey for taking bribes is really a message to Biden that the FBI could easily turn on him if he doesn’t drop out right away. That doesn’t sound impossible to me. Something drastic like this might be the only thing that could force Biden to drop out right away. And that would allow the Democrats the time needed to find primary candidates to replace him.
And we’re still a year and more before the election. Based on what’s going on with food and gas prices and the current state of the Ukraine War I don’t think it’s unreasonable to say that things may get much, much worse over the course of the next year.
So, what will 2024 look like?
The economy looks problematic. Inflation is stubbornly high and the only thing that could bring it down is an even worse prospect, recession. So, the administration will be blamed for the economic problems. And the Ukraine War looks to be headed into a slow grinding quagmire. And the runaway crime in the nation’s major cities keeps getting more outrageous. Every week provides video of horrific violence or large-scale looting in the various downtowns. Add to this the investigations of Joe Biden on allegations of influence peddling associated with Hunter Biden’s “business ventures” and you have a perfect storm of voter discontent.
Now none of this is news. And the people counting (and printing) the ballots don’t have to worry about things like unpopularity of the candidate. They just have to make sure enough fake ballots are printed. But something new has been added to the mix.
Cynicism has gotten the upper hand. The majority of Independents and Republicans now say that 2020 was a fraud. That’s a new thing. Most people now think they were misled by the government about COVID, the vaccines and the lockdowns. That’s a new thing. A large majority of Americans think Joe Biden is a terrible president. That is new. A lot of people think the government is lying about the extent of inflation and the health of the economy. That’s new.
Pretty soon the majority of Americans will think that everything the government tells them is a lie. That’s a disaster for the Democrats.
This is all a new situation. For the most part, the American people have believed that the federal government was competent to carry out its duties. Social Security checks go out on time, the mail gets delivered and the armed forces protects us from foreign enemies. Well, the southern border is overflowing with narcotrafficantes, inflation is eating away at paychecks, the elections are fake and the FBI arrests grandmothers for protesting at school board meetings.
The anger and frustration are growing. And if another presidential election gets stolen, I think we’ll be into a different place where the old ways of doing things no longer pertain. Even the Mad Hatters in Washington will be afraid of what they see in that Looking Glass.
